3 NBA Player Prop Bets to Target on Tuesday 3/10/20
Player props can be useful in a variety of ways, from taking advantage of them straight up (to the tune of cold hard cash), to measuring a player's potential to produce in daily fantasy basketball.
While you can use those odds in fantasy, you can also utilize our fantasy projections and a variety of other tools to help make money betting everyday player props.
For the purposes of this article, we are using the odds provided at FanDuel Sportsbook to pinpoint three spots where value can be had on a player's stat line, scoring, or even shot type.
Please note that betting lines and our game projections may change throughout the day after this article is published.
Hassan Whiteside, Over 30.5 Points + Rebounds
Hassan Whiteside has double-doubled in 13 straight games, averaging 18 points and 15.5 rebounds per game during that span. In his last five overall, he's posted 20.6 points and 14.6 rebounds -- those numbers are 19.2 and 15 in his last five at home. He's been on fire for the Portland Trail Blazers, and in Friday's game versus the Phoenix Suns, Whiteside recorded 23 points and 20 rebounds for his only 20-20 game of this impressive 13-game stretch -- a stretch that he's recorded seven 15-point, 15-rebound games.
The Suns are the opponent again, and this time the game is in Portland. Phoenix ranks 22nd in points per game to centers (22.25) and 13th in rebounds per game (15.20). Without Deandre Ayton in the lineup for the Suns, Whiteside has to bully Aron Baynes and continue his impressive double-double streak in the process. numberFire's model projects Whiteside to record 15.8 points and 12.9 rebounds, but I like him hitting the over.
Ja Morant, Over 29.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists
Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies are on the road tonight in Orlando for their second and final meeting of the season. In his lone meeting with Orlando, he had one of his worst performances of the season recording 8 points, 7 assists, and 1 rebound in 26 minutes. This time around, the Magic are allowing 116.8 points per game in their last five.
Morant is averaging solid numbers over 29 home games, with 19.3 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 4 rebounds per contest. Expect Morant to take advantage of Orlando's lackluster defense since the All-Star break and bounce back after that terrible first showing in Orlando. The Magic rank 19th in points per game to point guards (24.17), sixth in assists (7.65), and fourth in rebounds (5.62). Morant has averaged 23.6 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 4.6 assists in his last three home games, all resulting in the over. numberFire's model pegs Morant to record 17.7 points, 6.7 assists, and 3.6 assists -- but I expect a bit more and him hitting the over.
Julius Randle, Over 34.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists
Julius Randle has double-doubled in 7 of his last 10 games for the New York Knicks, who are on the road in Washington again. Randle has had quite some success against Washington, averaging 28.7 points, 11.3 rebounds, and 3 assists in three games versus the Wizards. Over his last five games overall, Randle has scored 20.8 points, 11.4 rebounds, and 1.6 assists. Randle has been even better in his last five on the road, with 23.4 points, 11.2 rebounds, and 3.4 assists.
The Wizards rank 19th versus power forwards, allowing 22.27 points per game, as well as 25th in rebounds (11.74). Washington is allowing 116 points per game in their last five overall, and Randle should be able to take advantage of their poor interior defense. Expect Randle to hit his over totals for his fourth and final matchup with the Wizards this season. numberFire's model projects Randle with 19.6 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 3.2 assists -- but I like him hitting the over versus the Wizards yet again.
